    30 seconds with a grinder is a lot easier than removing all that stuff. Not sure the difference between TSP and Kooks though.

    Dude you shouldn't have had to pull put the alternator. Just remove the 4 bolts to the motor mounts connected to the k member and lift the motor. If you get it high enough with the right angle, it will slide right in.
    I did the tsp lt's last week.

    And i left the coil packs, only reason you remove isto be easier on your hands for the header bolts and plugs.

    Good luck to you man, i know they're a pain

    I would bet your car isn't high enough. I've never had to take anything out when doing headers. There's a casting plug on the side of the block ( little square chunk of aluminum) that you might have to grind or cut a little off of but after that it should slide right in and I'm betting you don't even have to do that with the TSP headers. They have to go in damn near straight from the bottom then rotate into place.

    ^^ That aluminum block on the side of the engine was a pain in the ass. I couldn't bring myself to grind on the engine, that's why I clearanced the K-member. You had to at least remove the oil filter, didn't you?
